According to Bill Ladson of MLB.com the Rangers “have inquired about” Nationals right-hander Todd Coffey as they search for bullpen help with Darren O’Day possibly out for the season and Alexi Ogando all but locked into the rotation.

Coffey was a nice low-cost pickup for the Nationals, signing a one-year, $1.35 million deal after the Brewers let him go despite posting a 3.52 ERA and 128/46 K/BB ratio in 153 innings during the past three seasons.

Coffey has been even more effective early on this year, throwing 19 innings with a 1.89 ERA and 19/6 K/BB ratio, and if the last-place Nationals can turn a $1.35 million investment in a 30-year-old reliever into a decent prospect they should jump at the chance.

    Nooo!! I immensely enjoy watching him and his HUGE man breasts and gut flopping all over creation when he runs out of the bullpen as if there were a pack of starving wolves on his heels. He gets applauded in Philly for the show he puts on before he gets to the mound. Coffey is the shiznit…
